Investors were also looking ahead to the first round of voting in France's closely watched presidential election over the weekend. France goes to the polls Sunday in an election that could decide the fate of the European Union. Eleven candidates will be in the initial round of voting. Any of four of them, spanning the spectrum from extreme-right to extreme-left, could progress to a second round of voting on May 7, when the two most popular candidates will face off.

The outcome of the election grows even more uncertain after Thursday's shooting on Paris' Champs-Elysees boulevard that killed a police officer and wounded three other people. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
